With the Giants in the process of determining their leadership structure for 2022, the club has looked to bring in Essendon's last premiership captain for a few words.
Hird's affiliation with the club comes through GWS assistant coach and former Essendon teammate Mark McVeigh.
The Herald Sun is reporting that this opportunity could lead to further involvement at the Giants in the future for Hird, but that no offer of anything permanent or ongoing had been made yet.
Hird's involvement with the Giants isn't a new idea, with the 1996 Brownlow Medalist speaking to the playing group during last year's hub in Melbourne.
Hird stepped down as Essendon coach in 2015 off the back of the club's infamous supplement saga in which Hird was banned for a year for his part in the program.
The five-time All-Australian was approached by Fremantle in 2019 in a bid to bring him back into the fold of clubland but nothing eventuated from those discussions.
He has made limited appearances in the industry since his presentation of the 2017 Norm Smith Medal to Dustin Martin.
